Official NOAA Hurricane Forecast Released

As the first named storm of 2018, there was heavy rainfall and flash floods in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas. And this is just the beginning.

After months of research, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center recently released their prediction for the 2018 hurricane season. The 2017 Atlantic Basin hurricane season was a busy one and scientists say we may be in store for another potentially active season. In fact, NOAA is predicting a 75% chance of a near- to above-normal hurricane season.

As far as the number of named storms, NOAA meteorologists predict:

Cummins Hero Spotlight: Debbie McAndrew

What's the Cummins Hero spotlight? It's a monthly series where we’ll share the story of a Cummins Hero nominated through our HERO program.

This month, we’re saluting Humane Officer Debbie McAndrew as our May Cummins Hero, nominated through our HERO program. Debbie, a U.S. Army veteran, was nominated for her selfless service to the animals of Jefferson County, Pennsylvania.

Important Tips to Endure Dangerous Heatwave Conditions

In some of these areas, it was so hot that planes were not permitted to fly, roads buckled and power outages occurred due to strain on the power grid from excessive use of air conditioning.

Heat waves of this magnitude are not just an inconvenience, they can be dangerous, even life-threatening, if proper precautions aren’t taken. There were 45 heat-related fatalities in 2015 according to NOAA. Of all natural disasters, heat holds the highest 10-yr average of fatalities with 113.

Storm Season Is In Full Force. Are You Ready For A Power Outage?

It happens like clockwork every May.

The air gets warmer and the weather gets less predictable and more intense, and we all know it’s coming. So there are really few excuses not to have a backup power plan in place. After all, you may only lose power for a couple of minutes, but it could also end up being weeks. And enduring a power outage that long could prove to be a miserable experience.

Cummins Is Perfecting the Science of Silence

As the old saying goes, good fences make good neighbors.

Well, so do quiet generators, and although we’re certain you make every effort to be the good neighbor, you could be overlooking a thing or two.

We’re referring to that old portable backup generator you bring out every time the power fails. It’s bad enough these machines crank out only enough power to run the fridge and TV at the same time, but the near-constant drone of their inefficient motors might really get on someone’s nerves.
